Clarks launch hot shoes for the autumn and winter

I’ve had a hectic day m’dears, chipping around central London at various press events all showcasing brand new goodies for AW12/13. I’ll share everything with you over the next few days so you can see what’s in store for later this year, but first I was so taken with the new collection by Clarks that I had to devote my first post to them…

First up, a fresh take on the classic Chelsea boot; v cute
The results of a collaboration with Harris Tweed are awesome
I don’t often wear flats but with all my stupid back problems, I’m starting to think I need a sensible (and funky) collection – these “Jilli Tweed” babies are very much IN
Clarks done invented the desert boot don’tcha know, and with a fabulous new heel shape, this remixed version – the “Serin Snow” – is deffo going on my autumn winter shoe wish-list
Am also feeling the Yarrabee (shown here in amber gold suede and grey suede) – a desert boot with a wedge is deffo a style I can live with (especially on the school run, it has to be said)
I might even manage to get Eliott out of his favourite black Clarks school shoes and into these desert boots for kids – mini versions of the shoes his dad swears by
Yep, big love for the AW12/13 desert boot collection
And if you want something a bit more glam (but still practical) Mary Portas’ range for Clarks may be of interest
A cobalt blue kitten heel from Ms. Portas? Yes, Ok, don’t mind if I do
